An Arkansas man who died after being arrested in Pasco last summer died of a stroke. The Franklin County Coroner’s office concluded Raymond L. Hankins, 54, died of natural causes. Hankins, 54, of Hot Springs, Ark, was on a road trip to California by way of the Northwest when he had a car accident near the Tri-Cities Airport and was arrested July 13. The next day, he suffered a seizure and was sent to Lourdes Medical Center. He spent four days on a ventilator there before he died, said officials.
Dave Burris has been living outside for about six months. The 67-year-old said he lost his job at a food processing plant in Pasco early last year and by July had lost pretty much everything else, including his home. Bewildered, he found himself on the street. Some days, he stands next to a Burger King on West 27th Avenue in Kennewick, holding a sign asking for help. Generous supporters pass bills and change through windows in quick, but friendly, exchanges. But nights are different.
Washington is celebrating a new unemployment record after revised figures show November had a lower rate than initially thought. The state Employment Security Department updated its November figures when it released its December report this week. Revisions are normal. But Wednesday’s news reveals a new record as the state said the economy grew by 11,100 jobs over the prior year, 1,200 more than initially thought. That nudged the unemployment rate down, to 4.4 percent from 4.5 percent.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
